The entire family got summer colds. Yours truly took care of everyone. While caring for the sick, our daughter decided that her heart was not beating any longer and there have been many late nights and tears as we explained for the millionth time that it was beating and that she was not going to die. She worked herself up to vomiting and hyperventilating. I am sooooo tired. She gets up multiple times a night and no matter what we say and no matter what we do she will not be comforted. She now has added to her list of worries, spiders in her bed, bugs biting her on the inside of her body, body parts heating up so much that they burst, eating bugs and them bursting inside of her, etc. etc. I think I might lose my mind!!! She is getting just 3 hours of sleep or so a night lately. We are constantly brainstorming and praying, but so far we are just bewildered and I pretty much cry myself to sleep at night. I think mostly because I am so tired.
And just because that's life, HF is pretty much MIA. But guess what. Starting September 10th, he will be home on "vacation" until the 23rd. I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to that.
So that is my last week in a nutshell. Right now I am going to go drink some chamomile tea not only because my nose is stuffy, but it is a stress reducer. Supposedly.
